Most managers find it difficult to approve technology expenditures submitted by their IT staff. It’s especially hard if you don’t have a technology background. Many managers have been forever scarred after spending an afternoon trying to learn the technical jargon involved in making an upgrade decision. Two terms you may have heard about recently are iSCSI and iSCSI Replication. iSCSI technology is important when planning and designing a company’s disaster recovery plan (hopefully as part of a broader Business Continuity Plan).
Since networks and the Internet are now essential to conducting daily business, the concept of data protection is now a very important issue. iSCSI Replication allows your company to constantly protect its critical business data.
The concept of iSCSI Replication is fairly simple to understand. Your customers, clients, and end-users need their data to always be available. Essentially, your company can mirror its data at another location anywhere in the world. Moreover, if the original system fails for any reason, your organization’s data will have been saved during the last replication. Since it’s done automatically, none of your company’s important and critical business and client information will be lost!
The part I get most excited about is that the technology is scalable. As your organization grows so can your storage solution! iSCSI Replication eases the management of a disaster recovery plan and it protects your company’s valuable data from corruption.
